Scale I Build

Found 79 results

  1. 1969 Rally Sport Camaros are one of my favorite cars and black and gold is my favorite color combination. I started with a Revell Z28 Camaro RS kit. As you know, a Z28 is a 302 small block and a ZL-1 is a 427 big block. I got the big block from an AMT 68 El Camino kit. For something different I used the Electronic Fuel Injection option from a 70 Chevelle SS kit. The gold SS stripes made by Keith Marks. http://public.fotki.com/mofobow/ During final assembly I found the hood would not close. I had to trim the motor mounts to set the engine a little lower, shave the throttle bodies and the EFI engine cover but even all of that was not enough. I then took a Dremel to the underside of the hood which was already painted and decaled. I ground down as much as I dared, and fortunately it was just enough. I got the Fujimi wheels & tires from ebay as I wanted the Pro-touring look. Wire wheels were not my first choice but it was the best I could do to get the 285/40 and 345/35 tires. In order to fit these wide tires, chassis modifications were necessary. First I cut away the inner fender wells in preparation for mini-tubbing. I used the rear wheel tubs hacked from a 71 GTX chassis I had left over from an eBay lot purchase. The stock leaf spring suspended axle could no longer work so I snagged the ladder bar rear from a 72 Nova kit. The front suspension and inner fender wells required serious grinding and trimming as well. Since the wheels were open enough, I added disc brake rotors from my parts bin. Other details include filling four of the rectangles in the grille for the ZL-1 emblem decal, adding back up lights from the parts bin, and meticulously painting the hidden headlight frames. Overall I am quite pleased with the result. If I had to do it over, I would NOT have used Testors clear coat over Keith’s decals. They wrinkled a bit due to some kind of reaction.
  2. Here's a look at what's inside the 1/25 Revell Camaro Concept SnapTite Max, kit 85-1527, this time molded in lime green, and with both water slide decals and stickers included: http://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/957/revell-1527-camaro-concept-snaptite This is pretty much the same Revell Camaro Concept kit first released back in 2006, with some minor changes as noted above. Previous kit versions were molded with silver, orange, and yellow bodies, and I believe the silver version was also offered in Revell's Build & Play program, too:
  3. This is a Danbury Mint Camaro SS 350 which I won last week. Technically it is not the Indy pace car because Franklin Mint licensed the rights to that I believe and made a fine model of it with the Indy decals. That is why I am calling it a replica because the interior, hood, engine etc. differ from the actual pace car. Left to right are the Welly Z28, M2 Z28, and the DM SS. These will be the last of the Gen 1 Camaros I plan to collect unless a Donohue Sunoco Camaro should drop into my lap.

    1980 Z28

    I'm still getting my new model room set up so ain't had a chance to get back to the builds I had in progress. Although I don't have any of my hundreds of old builds anymore, I still have photos of some I liked. I believe this Z28 was a 1980 Monogram kit, but not sure. It was in my display case for many years and the decals had faded some when I took these photos circa 2013 or so.
  5. I built this Monogram kit decades ago. Alas, it was sold with the rest of my collection when I moved in 2017. I knew I'd have regrets, but had to downsize. Now, I'm starting over. Monogram made some nice kits, and was my favorite brand.
  6. Done this about a decade ago when i first learned how to draw paths in PS. Started on a rough pencil sketch. Kept on adding details to make this. Did it with a mouse so it was a pain to learn.
  7. While looking for the resin 1970 L88 Motion hood I made years ago, I found this old body from around 1995. At one time it was used as a master to cast Baldwin Motion Phase III GT Corvettes. They were for me and Joel exclusively. At one time it was a finished replica of the car he bought back from a Hollywood lot. It was in all the Corvette magazines in 1992. I went to a shop in New Jersey that was doing a frame on restoration with Joel in his 5.0 Mustang convertible to check progress. Today the car is in Dan McMichael’s collection and has been on My Classic Car. An interesting story about this gold Corvette. While I was at the shop in New Jersey, Joel and the shop owner we’re looking at pictures of a phase 3 Corvette that was blue with white accents and the Shelby scoops. Joel was trying to decide whether or not it might have been a car that he built. Looking over their shoulder’s I noticed that it had two slotted taillights. Joel said it looked like something he might’ve done but never did one in that color. I said it’s probably the gold one in the magazine article that you took pictures of when it was new. It has two taillights also. It dawned on Joel that it was the same car repainted a number of times. Because flipping through the pictures he had, they were pictures of it red with white accents. That car has since been restored back to gold with black accents and was auctioned off on one of the Barrett Jackson auctions a number of years ago. This is one of Joe’s first phase 3 GT Corvettes. It was featured at the Waldorf Astoria auto show in 1969. Zora Arkus-Duntov loved this car! I resin cast a full bumper front end conversion kit for the Camaro 15 years ago. Wish I knew were that mold went! This green Camaro is the oldest, completed Motion build I still have. Built in 2000, it is my first base/clear attempt. This red Manta Ray was a curbside resin kit I was selling around 2001. This model went to Joel. These two are across the room right now and I have a third in red again, awaiting clear. Joel only built 3 Manta Rays, so I will have a replica of each! This one is the Motion Moray. I presently sits in clay to make a mold of the body! This a Motion Nova hiding on my desk. Hope you like them! Any questions or comments are welcome! Back to the 1968 Baldwin Motion Chevelle!
  8. Hey, everyone!, I recently had an old friend move here from Santa Cruz, California. We use to build together over a decade ago, and now he wants to start it up again! I asked him which car he wanted to build, and he chose AMT's 1970 Baldwin Motion Camaro, so that's what we're doing. I mostly build exotics, but I do have a TON of muscle car kits, this however, will be my very first GM build.....i'm pretty stoked!! The 1970 Camaro is my favorite year for that car, in fact, 1970 was the BEST year for muscle cars from ALL the manufacturers! If you are familiar with how I build, this will come as no surprise....its almost imposable for me to NOT change things. This is no exception, lol. He will build his in a more traditional Hot rod way, which I will also post here as we go. Heres a riddle for mine; what do you get when mix the following cars, and styles together?...
  9. Hi folks, this is my recently finished build. Hope you like it.
  10. After 12 years, I finally got this one off the bench! Using the intake and exhaust from the 69 Nova kit, and the Air cleaner assembly from (I think) the MPC 69 Camaro kit, I present to you a stock Z/28 RS!

  12. I started this one I don't know how long ago, probably around 2015 or so. Anyway, playing with the Yenko Nova and 68 Chevelle I thought I'd get Chevy's other heavy hitter back. What is funny is I compared this body to the AMT 68 Camaro, and I think the AMT version looks a little smaller than it should be. What do you guys think?
  13. Well I built this from the foose issue of the 1/12 kit. This is my first big scale kit I have completed. Mostly box stock. Paint is a duplicolor gm color and the stripes are airbrushed on. I added the springs, vacuum lines, brake/fuel lines and other small details in the bay. Overall the kit was pretty decent to put together. There was a few fitment issues and the chrome plating is not very good. But the finished product came out very well. This will probably be my last finished build for 2018 😎 Thanks for looking.
  14. Hi all fellow builders,,wishing you a happy thanksgiving coming up. I always enjoy the oddball,,not so popular kits to build. This is one I got for 10$ at April #DAMM show in SE Mich. Its the 1996 pop of Jack Baldwins SCCA trans-am Camaro. First off,,its not the color scheme of the original car,,but I like it in light blue just the same. It went together fairly well,,the decals were scary,,trying to get them to hug the radius scallops/lines on doors ect. I used the decal micro-soft stuff,,and after a while they went on decent. Added some minor wiring/plumbing,, not a contest car,,but a good addition to my shelf. Hope this finds you doing well! Build on!
  15. I know I’ve said this before but this will be one of the last salvage builds I do from decommissioned builds I’ve done. I was just experimenting with stuff and decided to start on this
  16. This is a special build because its for a customer who just wants chassis done, along with wheels and tires
  17. One of my other builds I started with a big scratch built turbo. It's gonna be another small tire car with a tube chassis.
  18. I'm building a kit bash camaro. I am wondering if anyone makes resin car seats. Does anyone make camaro seats? Is there a site I can go to and find custom interior for models? Worst case if anything let me know what kind of model kit to search out for these parts. I'm trying to find these exact seats/interior for my build. I believe these are from a 73 camaro.
  19. I just recently took all the vacation, sick time and FMLA in order to come to U of W to have both knees receive a new interior meniscus cartilage tissue from cadaver. No weight for 8 weeks so my dear wife purchased this Level 2, 1970 1/2 Chevy Camaro model to build because she knows her attorney husband will go crazy just watching television or reading books and legal materials! I haven’t put a model together since I was 10 yrs old, so this is a first for me really, but I’m looking for a site that sells 1/18th or larger scale models to build.
  20. With this being the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro I thought it might be fun to start a build thread for those interested. Any Camaro from the past 50 years, stock, race, etc could be done. I was thinking the build could be for fun, no prizes. I really don't know how to run a group build or what needs to be done to get one off the ground. Thoughts?
  21. Nice re-release of the classic 83 Z28 kit. Minimal flash, nice chrome work, decal sheet is clear. No big new surprises on this one, just a good repop of an older kit. Would have liked some different tires though, just personal opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLIfObfE2oY
  22. Soooooo a question about paint..... The yellow on the hood and the yellow on the body are different shades. I put another layer of paint on the body to try and even it out, as that's the lighter of the two. What else can I do to improve the look, and make it look really glossy??
  23. Got this 2010 Chevy AMT Showroom Replicas Camaro kit from eBay a long time ago and final had a cool idea. I ordered the decals from Bill Bozo and painted the car with German Silver metalic. The decals are top notch and well worth the almost month long wait. Took some artistic license in placing the decals on the front. The words could not be placed together as they are in the Chargers because of the vent on the front. Took a bit of artistic license with the blue interior tail lights. Found a "Call #677" plate and scaled it down. The two antennas on the drivers side are custom built, while the ones on the passenger side I found in a box or spare parts. You can see the radar display mounted to the dash behind the windshield. The radar itself is made from various sizes of styrene with pieces of clear sprue in each end. The spotlight is made from a head light from a '29 Ford Roadster. I made the computer out of a piece of styrene in which I printed a screen and keyboard then attached it to a piece of round styrene and attached it to the center console. Hard to see in this picture, but there is a custom CB radio in the center console, just in front of the cup holder. Caught some young whipper snappers out driving their '66 El Camino on the back roads. Thank you for looking.
